DAC MicroGrants is a visionary funding program for artists in La Plata, Archuleta, Montezuma, Dolores and San Juan Counties. Understanding that a financial barrier is oftentimes all that stands in the way of an artists’ next critical step in their career, MicroGrants distributes small but impacting funds to emerging and established artists, serving as a catalyst to further their work while living and creating in Southwest Colorado.  This opportunity is open to DAC members as well as non-members.


Artists do not have to be members of the Durango Arts Center, and no priority will be given to DAC members. Individual artists working in the following mediums are welcome to apply:

  • Visual
  • Performing
  • Musical
  • Literary
  • Film
  • Media

Artists must be currently living and creating work in one of the five counties surrounding Durango:  La Plata, Archuleta, Montezuma, Dolores or San Juan.

Funding may be applied towards artistic needs small and large, depending on the proposal. DAC MicroGrants supports ambitious projects that embrace experimentation and focus on process, as well as emerging artist essentials, such as materials, supplies, professional development or website fees.
